After World War II, the United States experienced a period of economic prosperity. More people bought automobiles than ever before, so auto manufacturers began to market models to specific niches in society. The "woodie" station wagon, which had wood-paneled sides, was popular throughout the 1940s. Chrysler developed the Town and Country as a luxury "woodie wagon" that was meant to evoke hunting trips and weekend country retreats. By the 1960s, however, the woodie had lost its cachet, becoming the vehicle of choice for California surfers due to its surfboard-friendly roomy interior.
